BIRMINGHAM, AL (November 1, 2017) – If you're a vegan looking for a meal kit option that won't break the bank, meal planning service eMeals has you covered. The new eMeals Vegan Meal Plan solves the "What's for dinner?" dilemma with creative, plant-based, animal-free dinner menus that change on a weekly basis while also costing an average of $3.50 per serving. That's half the typical food cost of other meal kit services, thanks to eMeals' use of grocery stores instead of meal kit services bringing the pre-portioned ingredients to your door.
The plan delivers seven easy-cook vegan dinner recipes to subscriber smartphones or email inboxes every week, including a featured recipe from EatingWell magazine with others created by eMeals plant-based diet experts. Initial menus range from a one-dish Ratatouille with White Beans and Polenta to super-fast Portobello Mushroom Burgers with Paprika Mayo, slow-cooker Three Bean-Veggie Chili, Farro Pilaf with Roasted Cauliflower, and a Vegetable-Packed 'Meat Loaf' featuring cremini mushrooms, peas, roasted red peppers and walnuts.
Each week's plan also includes an automatically generated grocery list that can be used to self-shop or sent with a click to AmazonFresh, Walmart Grocery, Kroger ClickList or Instacart for curbside pickup or home delivery. Those fulfillment options, coupled with the fact that eMeals ingredients come in standard packaging, keep costs low by eliminating the expense of measuring, bagging, boxing and mailing portion-size recipe ingredients required with conventional meal kits.
Other benefits include:
- Flexible weekly meal choices. Don't need all the dinners one week or want to swap this week's Skillet Chilaquiles for last week's Roasted Fall Vegetables with Creamy Penne? Simply tap to delete unneeded meals or substitute favorites from your eMeals recipe box. The week's grocery list will be automatically adjusted to accommodate the changes.
- Non-vegan options. If you're transitioning to a vegan diet and want some non-vegan meals to ease the way, you can replace any of the week's meals with recipes from eMeals' other meal plans, including Quick & Healthy, Vegetarian, Clean Eating, Mediterranean, Low Carb, Low Calorie and more.
- More-than-meal-kit grocery shopping – Have enough tomato paste in the cupboard for this week's menus but need cereal and toilet paper? Just delete items you don't need, add those you do, and say goodbye to extra shopping trips.
- Less packaging waste. Unlike conventional meal kits, eMeals has no cardboard shipping containers or cooling packets that add unnecessary waste.
"One of the challenges of going vegan is varying your meals so you're getting balanced, nutritionally complete meals and aren't eating brown rice with tofu and vegetables every night," said eMeals VP of Content Scott Jones. "With seven new recipes every week, the eMeals vegan plan provides variety and inspiration that help avoid the same-old-dinner boredom. It's like having a personal chef who helps you maintain your commitment to a vegan diet by continually surprising you with new and interesting dishes."
